USU Parents & Family Program Mission

To serve families through programming designed to equip parents with resources they need to help their student succeed at Utah State University. We do this by providing Parent Orientation, Parent Publications & Podcasts, and Deferment & Notification of Leave Outreach.

We provide parents and families with these resources to promote student success and independence at any stage in their student’s academic career at Utah State University.

Parent & Family Big Questions

No matter what stage of the journey you and your student are on, it's natural to have questions, like:
  1. How can a university education translate into success for my student?
  2. How can I intentionally engage in ways to help my student be successful?
  3. How should my student and I take advantages of resources available?
You can find the answers to all this and more in this handbook or at usu.edu/parents
